Quite surprisingly, one of the best-reviewed multiplayer first-person shooters currently available — New World Interactive's Insurgency: Sandstorm — is officially heading to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at some point this summer.
According to publisher Focus Home Interactive, the long-awaited console port of 2018's Insurgency: Sandstorm will be released on August 25, inviting players to "prepare for a hardcore depiction of combat with deadly ballistics, destructive artillery, and unprecedented audio design that puts the fear back into the genre. Death comes fast, ammunition must be carefully managed, and the environment must be tactically navigated at every step towards victory."
Insurgency: Sandstorm is a sequel to 2014's breakout hit Insurgency, powered by CSGO's Source Engine.
With over one million players in the game’s first year on PC, bringing Insurgency: Sandstorm to the consoles sounds like an obvious decision. “The console market has been craving a hardcore modern-day tactical shooter for a long time. Expanding our tried and tested PC formula to the console market is a huge step in our company’s evolution and we are excited to bring our signature style of tactical FPS to the console market for the very first time," President of New World Interactive Keith Warner said.
To make the wait a little bit easier, Focus Home has released a new trailer for PAX East 2020, so check it out:
Insurgency: Sandstorm is a team-based, tactical FPS based on lethal close quarters combat and objective-oriented multiplayer gameplay. Sequel to the indie breakout FPS Insurgency, Sandstorm is reborn, improved, expanded, and bigger in every way. Experience the intensity of modern combat where skill is rewarded, and teamwork wins the fight. Prepare for a hardcore depiction of combat with deadly ballistics, light attack vehicles, destructive artillery, and HDR audio putting the fear back into the genre.
Insurgency: Sandstorm is currently available on PC (via Steam); coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 25, 2020.
